Abstract
Papers covering all aspects of wind data systems were presented by twenty-four meteorological and engineering professionals. The workshop had several objectives: (1) to illustrate application of wind data; (2) to review available wind data, its quality and limitations; (3) to discuss ways of modeling and characterizing the wind climate from meteorological data; (4) to deliberate needs and areas of improvement in acquiring meteorological data for climate description.
